We used Abate Associates to sell my Mother’s home as well as ours. We hit a few snags selling our home but Claire & Jim we’re right on top of it. We would highly recommend them to sell your home. They both were a pleasure to work with.


“Dear Claire, This is a Big Thank you for all your time and effort in selling my Easton home and negotiating my Plymouth Home – which I love! Also, thank you for the American flag pole and the pretty snow ball! All is appreciated very much! Plan to visit when you are in the area! Also, please thank Jim for his help these past couple of months!! Have a good week and take care! Thank you again for everything! Love, Carol” 

 


“Dear Claire or Jim, I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support throughout the summer. I’m very appreciative of all you did to sell my house in such a short time! I consider myself to be very lucky to have met you! Thank you for your kindness and your professionalism. Sincerely, Rabia” Rabia Mifdal, 10/9/17

My boyfriend and I knew very little about buying a home when we started looking for a house. Jim was absolutely amazing. He helped us through every step of the process from finding a mortgage company we were comfortable with to the day we signed our names on the deed. It was challenging to find  the right home at the right price point for us. Thanks to Jim and Claire, our dreams are now a reality. I encourage anyone who is serious about wanting to find your own home to put your trust in Jim and Claire. You will soon be living your own dream!!

This is the second home I purchased with Claire’s partnership. The entire time I felt like she was looking out for my best interest with not 1 second of feeling pushed. She was almost always available for me, no matter how small the question. It was a great experience and I found the perfect house  with her help.

My experience with Claire was exceptional. There were delays in closing that were not her fault. During this somewhat trying time Claire provided prompt, accurate, & encouraging information to mitigate the stress involved in closing. Because of her professional expertise, I referred her to a very close friend of mine who was having difficulty selling his house with another unresponsive broker. In less than one month Claire had an acceptable offer with a close scheduled. I would highly recommend Claire.

I have sold 2 houses and bought one new build with Claire. She is a responsive, pro-active and patient agent who will patiently show you a million houses if that is what it takes to find The One. I was looking for a non-traditional house in Raynham, a very traditional town. But after searching for  over a year, we found a lot and a builder in the most beautiful neighborhood. We just moved in and are very happy with out purchase. Since I needed to sell a house in order to purchase the new one, I turned to Claire who sold it very quickly to a lovely family. Knowing that someone purchased the house who loves it made me feel so positive about moving. If you need a house sold quickly, call Claire!

I have known Claire for many years, so when a cousin and a friend wanted to sell their homes I referred them to Claire because I knew her to be a smart, honest, woman of integrity as well as a confident, enthusiastic go getter. They were both extremely happy ! Years later, when the time came to put  my family homestead on the market I naturally went to Claire. Although I was very happy to begin my next chapter, at the same time there was also the other emotions of selling the family home. I called and text Claire many times, all of which she promptly returned. She is not only a professional and extremely competent agent, she is also a people person, always pleasant and genuinely a kind, understanding and patient lady. I will continue to confidently refer Claire in the future.

Claire was not only my agent when I bought the home that I’ve lived in for the past 4 years, but she was also my agent for the recent sale of my father’s home after he passed away. This was a very difficult time for my family and I, and couldn’t have asked for anything better than Claire’s service.  She was thorough, consistent, efficiently, and very friendly throughout the entire process, which is just what I remembered from the first time I worked with her. Claire is a great asset to real estate community, and I am looking forward to working with her again in the near future.
